BMI also lists the following titles as written by Joyce Harris: “Don’t Put Off Till Tomorrow” and “The Frog” (recording details unknown).

Judy & Joyce were Judy and Joyce Harris. Judy Harris (apparently the same person) also recorded one single for Shelby Singleton in 1970: “Glory Train” / “You Touched Me” (Sun SUN-1117; 1975 reissue Sun SI-1117).
